Multicultural tales from Tradewind Books

I recently received an exciting package of books from Tradewind. They produce beautiful picture books, chapter books, fairy tales, and poetry, along with a good selection of young adult titles.

Here are two of their picture books:

A young prince saves the life of a mouse, who repays him in an unexpected way. A gentle story, simply told, about kindness and its rewards. With lovely, luminous paintings.

Chandra’s parents are swept away by a flood. The only thing she has left is her mother’s flute. When Chandra’s aunt and uncle mistreat her, the flute brings her food. And when Chandra is caught in another flood, the flute brings her to safety. 

An enchanting Indian fairy tale about hope and endurance.
